Benefit Bigger & Bolder Brows | Review

A few weeks ago I recieved a very exciting package from Benefit, which contained a bunch of their new products. I’ve selected a few that I’d like to share with you over the coming weeks, starting with the  Benefit Bigger & Bolder Brows buildable-colour kit for dramatic brows. This kit supposedly contains everything you need to create “wow brows”. I’ve tried brow products from Benefit before and I’ve felt very positively about them in the past. Benefit know what they’re doing when it comes to eyebrows, so I’m really excited to give this kit a go. Let’s see how I like it!

Back To Reality | Loepsie’s Life

Hello my lovely readers! I come to you with my photo diary on a Tuesday, since my friends from Ireland came over to Utrecht yesterday and I wanted to spend the day with them. So, my first week back home… I had lots of great things planned, was all fired up and ready to get to work, but then I got felled by a cold. I should’ve known, after 9 days in rainy, cold outdoor Scotland it’s a miracle I didn’t come down with it sooner. I wasn’t ready to cancel all of my plans though, so I tried to take it easy inbetween and hope it blows over quickly. Let’s take a look at what my week was like!

Cindy Crawford | Beauty Beacons

It’s about time for a new episode of Beauty Beacons, don’t you think?
For the longest time I’ve held off on recreating looks from the 90s, because I thought they were too recent. Like, yesterday. Then I realised that’s just because I remember them, and I’m not getting any younger. So… Here’s Cindy Crawford for ya, a 90s Beauty Beacon if there’s ever been one. Enjoy!

What I Took On The West Highland Way

Last week’s trip to the Scottish Highlands was my first ever trek – hiking long distances & camping at night. As I had no experience with trekking yet, I did a lot of research beforehand about what I should and shouldn’t bring. You’ll be carrying everything on your back all day so packing light is a must. I decided to go all out and invest in some new, good gear. In hindsight, I can say I did a good job packing. Every item I brought was functional and lightweight, and there’s only one thing that broke on me (more on that later). In case any of you are interested in trekking, I thought it would be nice to share a list of everything I packed in my backpack on my journey along the West Highland Way. Good to know: I went for 9 days in late August, with seven other people. Some of the stuff we brought was shared, such as cooking equipment and food, so I’m not going to list that here today. You might notice a lot of the stuff I bought is from the Decathlon store. I’m not sponsored by them (wish I was!), but I have a store close to me and they generally offer good quality for the price, so I ended up buying nearly everything there. Ok, let’s take a look at what I carried around Scotland!
